History in a Pecan Shell

Originally settled in the 1830s, the name comes from original land grantee Isaac Decker. In 1863 a Confederate powder that had been operating near here exploded, killing three.

The earliest grave dates to the 1870s and the community was primarily an agriculturally-based economy from the late 19th century through the early 20th. No population figures, past or present, are currently available.
